I am a 57 yr old woman born in 1955 with 28 years of NI contributions. My husband and I sold our business in 2008 and I have not worked since. I am told I will receive my state pension when I am 67 yrs old. Should I make voluntary NI contributions to make them up to 35 years so that I will get the new flat rate of £144 -eventually ?
What is the exact date of birth?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

My date of birth is 5 June 1955


Your state pension age is 66 years which you will reach on 5th June 2021.

You are quite correct.

You may make up contributions for another 7 years in addition to your 28 years so that you reach 35 years and qualify for the £144 a week pension-eventually.
